The Love from Margot article published by Michael Murphy
The Love from Margot Foundation pays for Vet’s new teeth – giving him a second chance at life. Imagine being a former U.S. Marine, risking your life to serve your country. Once you get back from active duty, you don’t want to live on taxpayers' dollars. You want to get a job to support yourself. Reintegration into society is tough. The job market can be even tougher on those who were in military service. It’s not easy to get hired. Especially if you have no teeth. This is Joe Silva’s story. Joe lost all his upper teeth and has only a few of his bottom ones left. He is a vet who, after becoming homeless, could not care for himself the way he would have liked. When you hardly have money to feed yourself on a daily basis, there are no funds left for your healthcare. It starts with losing one tooth. Then comes another. Then it’s the avalanche effect… Joe felt self-conscious about his appearance and grew a mustache to hide his missing teeth. But that did not help the problem of not being able to chew properly. The situation got so bad that Joe could not even eat cooked spaghetti. He was devastated and felt undignified, as at times he had to use his fingernails as upper teeth, pushing against his lower teeth to chew his food. A once appreciated Marine who had given his all to his country now felt like a stray dog. Yet Joe was not willing to give up and was adamant on finding a job. The brutal truth is that with no teeth, no interview lasts more than a minute. It takes 30 seconds to make a first impression, and no matter Joe’s skills and commitment to set his life straight, nobody would give him a chance.
That’s when good Samaritans referred Joe to the Love From Margot
Foundation. They knew that the Foundation was helping cancer patients
and other deserving people who are suffering through tragedy and serious
setbacks. Joe’s request to the Love from Margot Foundation to help “put a
smile on his face again” so that he could get a second chance at life did not
fall on deaf ears.
Working with Lydie Livolsi, a Dental Specialist with My Dental Wig, Joe was
able to receive his dentures. His only current source of financial wellbeing
depends on the Los Angeles County Food Stamps Program, which gives
him a mere $194 monthly allowance. His new teeth were made possible by
a $2,615 grant. It is our heartfelt hope that with his new, professional
appearance, Joe, our retired vet, will be able to receive the opportunity he
deserves to improve his life.
The Love from Margot Foundation was created to change lives like Joe’s in
a profound way. Our Foundation is sustained and all grants are currently
paid for by our Founder, Mike Murphy. We hope that the stories you read
here on our blog will inspire you to contribute and help us support more
deserving people. If you feel inspired by a particular story, please go

need it most. It is greatly appreciated.
